Poem #51 from a series of meditations: the Pilgrim

Back to the Pilgrim – Introduction

answer the question
are you greater or lesser
for having judged

if you judge fairly
you are no more
than you have ever been

but if you err
by harshness or haste
perhaps through ignorance
what then

let your first consideration
examine the need f
or such opinions

let your next explore
the advantages
of a pause
before conclusion
